 Sarah Everhart Skeels

PUSHING THE BOUNDARIES TO ENGAGE LIFE
Sarah Everhart Skeels
October 18, 2012

Twenty-two years ago Sarah Skeels sustained a spinal cord injury when she was hit by a car while riding her bicycle and became paralyzed from the chest down. Life doesn’t end after disability; it just continues in a different way. Sarah has hand-cycled across the U.S., swum across the span of Newport Bridge, bare-boated in Guadeloupe, and gone scuba diving in Bonaire. She will discuss her adaptation to her disability, living life on her terms and how she came to these determinations.
